    Switzerland has said it is ready to mobilize up to 2,000 soldiers at border crossings should migrants continue to arrive into the country.

    Give them all one lindt truffle each

    Then fire a couple of million lindt truffles as far away from swtizerlands borders as you can. That should keep them at bay for a few months

    Well yes they do. They receive access to the Single market based on their acceptance of freedom of movement of EU citizens. I'd also note these are simple precautions and nothing of the sort has been implemented yet.

    Sweden should take note.

    Armed guards on borders with processing checkpoints at the most likely entry points would be a start. If any of them start acting violently or try to rush past barriers (as was the case with Calais), shoot and disperse.

    Because once they've travelled all the way up to Switzerland, as far as I'm concerned they're no longer refugees (and they probably never were 'real' refugees in the first place).

    Why not?
    Because they've already passed multiple safe countries to get to that point. They're economic migrants. They only want to go to and take advantage of the countries with generous welfare programs. Surely real refugees would be happy in the first 'safe' country they reach....

    Not necessarily.

    If the first country you visit is already full to the brim with refugees and cannot provide adequate assistance for any more then I, personally, would move onto the next country, especially if they are both more capable, and in some cases more willing, to care for refugees.

    That just wouldn't be the case. There are more than enough aid workers and refugees camps in both Greece and Turkey. You can then go through the legal process of claiming asylum in the EU.

    Correct, but users describing them as "illegal invaders" or saying that they should be shot and killed for trying to enter a country makes for uncomfortable reading.

    It's quite surprising that users of a usually liberal leaning forum hold these views.

    I don't think anyone needs a reminder of the consequences of dehumanising groups of people based on ethnicity.

    Nobody mentioned their ethnicity?
